The Script

Pinky and the Brain are shown the Kicky Sack Socko Sack Kicker assembly line.
INT. KICKY SACK FACTORY - DAY:

FACTORY OWNER:
I am honored by your visit, let me show your our assembly line.
(ENTERING FACTORY FLOOR)
First, sheets of sheer synthetic sheep skin are slit into several Kicky Sack shoe shapes and shapely shoe sizes by six sitting sheet slitters.

BRAIN:
I only see five sitting sheet slitters.

OWNER:
The sixth sitting sheet slitter's sick. His son, Sammy's subbing till the sick sixth sitting sheet slitter's back, sitting pretty.

PINKY:
You're not the sheet slitter?

SHEET SLITTERS SON:
No, I'm the sheet slitter's son.

PINKY:
Well, you keep on slitting sheets until the sheet slitter comes. ha ha ha!

OWNER:
The shoe shaper then shapes the slit synthetic sheep skin sheets and shoots out shoes through the chute.
This is Mr. Plunket, the new kaki sock plucker. I had to fire our previous sock plucker, he had a bit of an attitude.

BRAIN:
So, you sacked the cocky kaki Kicky Sack sock plucker?

OWNER:
The second cocky kaki Kicky Sack sock plucker I sacked, since the sixth sitting sheet slitter got sick! ...
(POWER OUTAGE)
Whoops! Don't worry; just an electrical problem.
One of the Kicky Sack sack pickers will have to flick the plug.

PINKY:
Not the kaki sock plucker?

OWNER:
Oh my, no. The Kicky Sack pickers flick the plug.
The kaki sock plucker can't reach the socket over the latex child perambulator fenders we use to line the treadmill.

BRAIN:
It might make more sense to have the sixth sick sitting sheet slitter's son flick the plug, if the sac pickers, and the sock picker are behind the rubber baby buggy bumpers.

OWNER:
I never thought of that.

CUT TO:
INT: BRAINS LABORATORY - NIGHT

BRAIN:
Now Pinky, here is the plan. Remember every step must be preformed with precision!

You must slit the sixth sitting sheet slitter's son's sheet. Secure it next the toy boat from the Hack'n'Sac Sock'o Kicky Sack sack-kicker's picnic in Secaucus.

Stretch it past the sack picker's station, and the sock plucker's chute.
Then pick a sack, pluck a sock, and flick the plug; so I can put the pea in the plucked sock with the picked sack for ballast, and bounce it off of the rubber baby buggy bumper, into the Parker-Packard purple pewter pressure pump.

Is that understood?

PINKY:
I understood "now."

Wow... this is great! Thanks for posting.

My contribution doesn't exactly qualify as tongue-twister material, per se.
I am told it is the copy that Don Pardo used to warm up. And, if it's good
enough for 'The Don,' it's good enough for me.

"Literary aspirants should religiously eschew polysyllabic orthography.
The philosophical and philological substructure of the principle is ineluctable.
Excessively attenuated verbal symbols inevitably induce unnecessary
complexity and, consequently, exaggerate the obfuscation of the mentality
of the peruser. Conversely, expressions which are reduced to the
furthermost minimum of simplification and compactness, besides
contributing realistic verisimilitude, constitute a much less onerous handicap
to the readerís perspicacity. Observe, for instance, the unmistakable and
inescapable expressiveness of onomatopoetic interjection or monosyllabic
utterances, especially when motivated under strenuous emotional
circumstances. How much more appealing is their euphonious pulchritude
than the pretentious and preposterous pomposity of elongated verbiage?"


Do you agree?
